Answer by dredude52
Training & classes
You need to do the work first, learn a few terms, read a few books, which you will have to do anyway. Go to the library, and browse through the row upon row of the subject. All of these questions will be answered as soon as you take the first step and read a beginners guide to investing.
Try to determine your time horizon. Short-term, long-term?
Take a look at charting and Technical Analysis for following trends in the markets. Why would you own a stock that is in an obvious decline?
Realize right away there are two sides to the market, not just the upside. What goes up, eventually comes down at least part way.
Learn how to analyze risk, and make this your primary approach, not by compounding profits and erroneously analyzing how much money you can make. For example, most traders don’t make any money at all; more than 80% blow out.
Learn about money management techniques, and maybe you’ll stick around awhile.
Try to find these books:
They say “Buy and Hold” for the long term is better, but that depends on when you get in, and what your definition of “long term” is. The phrase “Buy low and sell high” infers that you buy after a decline; but how much of a decline? If you had bought after a 1000 pt decline in the Dow in 2000, you would still be waiting to get back to even, six years later in most stocks.
